This dongle uses a VID and PID number though. Using Google doesn't seem to work with that.
It does if you use the correct numbers to begin with. <g> Since VIDs are 4 digits I suspect that the actual VID in question is 148F (and not just 148 as you posted). Combined with a PID of 2070, according to the usb.ids database
posted by the USB ID Repository
that points to a Ralink Technology
RT2070 device, for which you can find the drivers on the Ralink site here
